Dir. Howard L. Weiner (US, 2017, 90 min.)
When Dr. Abe Mandelbaum (Martin Landau) moves into Cliffside Manor nursing home with his deteriorating wife, Molly, he forms an improbable friendship with gambler and womanizer Phil Nicoletti (Paul Sorvino). At first, Abe feels that moving into the home is the end of the road, but he soon realizes that his life is finding a whole new beginning. Abe and Phil’s friendship is challenged when a mysterious nurse claims that her biological father resides in the home. Both Abe and Phil jump at the chance to convince Angela, and themselves, that they are her father. The Last Poker Game is written and directed by world-renowned neurologist and first time director Howard Weiner.
“The film tells a moving and complex story, and it features one of Landau’s final and finest performances.” - The Jerusalem Post
